Supported living

We know that finding the right care and support for your needs can be tricky, especially when you want to maintain your independence. That's why our supported living options are designed around what's important to you.

Supported living offers an alternative to residential care and empowers you to choose the right amount of support - how and when you need it - so you can lead an enriching and fulfilling life.

Our supported living is based on positive outcomes and 30 years of expertise of developing environments that focus on promoting and encouraging the people we support’s independence and functioning.

The type of support you receive is controlled by you and with our staff, you will develop a personalised support plan based on your interests, priorities and skills. From help with personal care needs and managing finances, to finding education, work or leisure activities - you decide!

This can be in a variety of settings dependent on your needs, circumstances and goals but they could include any of the following:

  • Independent living - You could choose to live independently in your own flat with as much or as little support as you need. This could be in one of our already established properties, or we can work with you and our housing partners to source a property that meets your needs.
  • Shared living – We can help connect you to other people who might want to live independently too but aren't yet ready to live alone. You will have your own space but benefit from socialising with other like-minded people, sharing the communal spaces and sharing the costs of household bills.
  • Apartment living – You may be looking for the best of both worlds. Your own modern apartment with some shared communal space so you can choose when and if you want to socialise. We have worked with our housing partners to develop this popular type of accommodation.
  • Stepping stone accommodation – This provides stability whilst you are between long-term support solutions. This type of support will help you plan for your future in a structured way. We will support you with the skills you may need to help you live more independently and, when you are ready, support you to move on.

If you think you're ready for the next step towards independence, get in touch with our enquiry team today!
